Relationship, connection + bounce, [contract optional]
I have been through my rounds of relationships/hookups/flings during my 34 years on this earth and I have thought a lot about what it means and how it changes you. Because I think often people think of relationships in purely contractual terms. I have made the full journey from being younger when you listen to your inner voice, to being an adult when you listen to society and back again to my inner voice.
The official contract is meaningless. A relationship is connection + bounce.
